How Does Artificial Intelligence Work?
Much like human intelligence, AI works by taking in large amounts of data, processing it through algorithms that have been adjusted by past experiences, and using the patterns found within that data to improve decision-making.
To simulate human intelligence in this way, AI engineers provide their machines with ability to:
Perceive their surrounding environment (which may simply be data)
Detect patterns in the environment
Learn from the patterns and update experiential memory
Then, these steps are repeated until there’s enough data to confidently make predictions and support decision-making.
